Snack Like a Southerner: Cornbread


1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 cup unbleached flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp sugar
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 egg
1/4 cup corn oil (vegetable works too!)
2 tbsp butter

Step One:
Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients aside from the baking SODA. 

Step Two:
In another bowl, beat the sugar and egg. Add oil to mix.

Step Three:
In a third bowl, mix the buttermilk and baking soda. This will foam a bit.

Step Four:
Add all wet ingredients into one bowl. (Pour egg mix into buttermilk mix or vice versa)

Step Five:
When the oven is heated, toss the butter into the skillet and let it melt. While the butter is melting in the skillet or pan mix the dry and wet ingredients together to make a dough.

Step Six:
Remove the skillet/pan from the oven and swish the butter around a bit to coat the bottom of the pan. Pour batter in immediately. Bake for 25 minutes.
